San Francisco, CA – July 25, 2011 – No one throws a birthday bash quite like the people behind the Treasure Island Music Festival: in honor of the festival’s fifth birthday, festival producers Noise Pop and Another Planet Entertainment are proud to announce the 2011 lineup for what is undoubtedly one of the most incredible, unique music experiences of the year. Saturday will be headlined by Empire of the Sun, while Sunday will be headlined by Death Cab For Cutie; the lineup will be rounded out by the likes of Cut Copy, Explosions in the Sky, Beach House (in one of their only live shows of 2011!), Death From Above 1979, Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks, Chromeo, The Hold Steady, Dizzee Rascal (making a very rare Stateside appearance!) Flying Lotus, St. Vincent and many more.
Two Day Early Bird tickets will go on-sale with limited availability at a very special price of $99.00 on Wednesday, July 27th at 10am PST / 1pm EST. Once they are gone, Two Day Advance tickets ($115.00) will be available, followed by Two Day Regular tickets ($125.00) once the Advance tickets have sold out. Two Day VIP tickets ($219.00) will also be available on this day, in addition to Two Day Parking Passes ($50.00), which will be available a la carte for the first time.
Single Day VIP tickets ($119.50) and Single Day General Admission tickets ($69.50) will be made available on Friday, July 29th at 1pm EST/10am PST. Single Day Parking Passes ($25.00) will also go on-sale on this day.
Selected for its stunning, picturesque views, Treasure Island lays just off the coast of Yerba Buena Island in the San Francisco Bay. When the festival of the same name began in 2007, it quickly became one of the premiere music events of the fall concert season thanks to its consistently fresh and exciting lineups – in its five years, Treasure Island Music Festival has never repeated an act, providing a completely new sonic experience each year. Last year, a sellout crowd (for the second year in a row!) descended on the decommissioned naval base to see headliners LCD Soundsystem and Belle & Sebastian; by splitting each day into genre-specific artists – the first day features dance/electronic artists, while the second features indie rock bands – the festival has previously hosted a wide range of acclaimed artists since its inception, including MGMT, The Flaming Lips, Vampire Weekend, M.I.A., Modest Mouse, The Raconteurs, Justice, Spoon, Thievery Corporation, Girl Talk, The Decemberists and many more.
In addition to providing music lovers with the coolest artists and an incredible setting, Treasure Island Music Festival ensures that attendees never miss a note of music. With two stages that alternate between bands, rather than having them play simultaneously, concert-goers have the chance to literally hear every note of every artist for the entire weekend.
For its fifth anniversary, Treasure Island Music Festival will be pulling out all the stops!
Here’s the line-up. Get excited!
